    same capacity, but of different price
    « on: December 02, 2006, 11:33:57 PM »
    In a window shopping, I saw some HDDs with same capacity, brandname, rpm,
    but they are of different prices.

    1. Maxtor IEEE1394,7200rpm, 300GB: US$ 200
    2. Maxtor Serial ATA,7200rpm, 300GB: US$ 70
    3. Maxtor UDMA100, 7200, 300GB: US$ 97

    Could someone tell me what makes the differences in the price?

    The second item seems very resonable. Should I take it?

      1. Requires firewire connection
      2. Requires SATA connection and power connector
      3. Standard IDE drive, should work in any machine
      If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

          USB 2 is much more common these days and is as fast.
